Declaring a Major
All students are required to declare a major and select a faculty mentor by the end of their sophomore year, when they have completed 48 or more semester credits. To do so, students must change their major on AugNet Service’s Records and Registration’s dashboard under “Student Info”. You must have a faculty mentor in your major(s). Once you have changed your major, you need to turn in a Change of Mentor form or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your new faculty mentor copied onto the message.
First-year students are required to meet with their academic advisor for the first two terms. All other undergraduate students are required to meet with their faculty mentor. If you are unsure on who to select for your faculty mentor, we encourage that you speak with the Chair of the department for your intended major so that you can be properly match with a faculty mentor in that department.
